Writing Style Guide

Students of The Master’s Seminary adhere to the style and formatting requirements in Kate L. Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers (8th ed., 2013). For matters specific to biblical and theological studies we defer to The SBL Handbook of Style: For Biblical Studies and Related Disciplines (2nd ed., 2014). This supplement addresses some style and formatting issues, and specifies the seminary’s requirements for theses, dissertations, and doctoral projects.
